Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Jeep Wrangler I recommend the following items:

1. Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit Item # RM-521453-5. This base plate is a direct-connect base plate that allows you to easily connect your tow bar. It has removeable tabs to maintain a clean look on the front of the vehicle when not towing. It is more hidden than a cross bar style and requires less trimming

2. Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Item # RM-676. This tow bar come equipped with safety cables and the umbilical pre installed. It has an integrated LED light strip in each arm which makes it visible in low light conditions. It connected directly to the base plate with a simple pin and clip which are included. It is a non-binding tow bar which makes it easy to disconnect on unlevel terrain.

3. Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. This kit allows you to utilize your factory taillights for signals from the motor home. The diodes connect to the factory wires behind the taillights and protect your factory wiring from back feed from the motor home. Once installed it is completely hidden. The only thing that would need to be done it attach the umbilical between the two vehicles.

4. Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Supplemental Braking System Item # RM-9400. This system is a portable system which can be used in multiple vehicles. It is simple to set up when ready to tow and easy to remove when not in use. It is a proportional system so it matches the brake pressure applied in the RV.

5. 12 Volt Outlet Kit, 20 amps Item # RM-9332. This will be required when using the portable braking system as the vehicle will go to sleep and will not have power to the factory 12 volt plug. This kit get wired directly to the battery .

6. RoadMaster 6-Wire Trailer Connector Item # RM-910030-7. This plug is to be mounted on the front of the Jeep and wired into the diode wiring kit. This is the plug to attach your umbilical from the motor home so your factory taillights can receive the proper light functions.

I have included instillation videos. Some may be on different year but will be the same with the exception of wire colors. I recommend testing any wires you will be splicing into to determine the correct ones.
